ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Ben Zobrist hit an RBI single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Tampa Bay Rays won their season-best seventh straight game, beating the Minnesota Twins 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Zobrist lined a 1-2 pitch from Ryan Pressly (2-1) into the gap in right-center field, ending a 4-hour, 47-minute game that featured 35 strikeouts — 19 for Rays pitchers.

Tampa Bay climbed to a season-best 12 games over .500. The Rays also improved to 9-1 a stretch of 14 consecutive games against the Twins, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros — teams with the three worst records in the American League.

Minnesota has lost 10 of 11, including four straight.

Cesar Ramos (2-2) got two outs, escaping a jam with runners at first and third in the 13th to get the win.
